Board » Otello - v 2.0

Otello 2.0

Otello is a strategy board game named after an opera. It is not named after a certain commercial strategy board game, although there is a vague resemblance between the two. :-) Otello can play at three skill levels, or it can be used by two people as an electronic game board. If you like, it can suggest what it thinks is the best move available at any time. Please send me a postcard if you enjoy this game.

Board » RChess - v 2.2.2

RChess 2.2.2 - Fills a market gap, by being easily beaten at its lower levels. Unkind people have suggested that this feature applies at the higher levels too. Usually beats its programmer on level 4, often on level 3, and occasionally on level 2. Is given away free, gratis, without charge, and for nothing. Nor are you required to pay for it. Examines up to 1500 moves per second on LCIII; up to 3600 per second on Quadra 650. The natural awe with which naive people regard these numbers should be tempered by the fact that most of the moves examined are stupid ones that no human player would contemplate at all.

Board » Snood - v 2.0

Snood is a puzzle game which emphasizes thought rather than reflexes.  Your goal is to remove the Snoods from the playfield by launching other Snoods up at them.  You can do this in two ways:  (1) Transporting Snoods --Matching up three or more Snoods of the same type allows them to transport away, and (2) Dropping Snoods -- if after a Snood transport some Snoods are no longer connected to the top of the playfield, they will drop to safety. 

Snood has no time limits, allows you to play at your own pace, is non-violent and non-confrontational, and has a variety of difficulty levels, including one for children.

Board » Sokoban - v 2.5

Sokoban - v 2.5

In Sokoban, you are a warehouse keeper trying to get boxes through a maze of a warehouse to their proper locations. The boxes are so heavy that you can only push one of them at a time. Be careful that you don’t get a box trapped in a corner: the boxes have no handles so they can’t be pulled at all. If you prefer a more glamorous description, replace “box” by “treasure chest”; in fact, I think I’ll do that in the rest of these docs.

There are over 200 different levels included (separated into several collections), and you can make your own levels, too. If you design good levels, I’ll include them in the next version and give you credit. 

Board » Stones 1.1

Stones 1.1 is an ancient African or Mesopotamian game. I have heard it referred to as Awele, Ouare, Kalah, and Mancala. I couldn't choose, so I went for something simple. It is played by moving stones around a board. The AI isn't bad, and it's a fun little game to kill a few minutes here and there. Stones is freeware. Version 1.1 now saves user preferences automatically, and has new sounds, this time not so blatently ripped off.
